I recently had the pleasure of taking a course intitled Synaptogenesis and Cognitive Decline, which was taught by two AK docs: Dr. Chris Astill-Smith, DO, ND, DIBAK and Dr. Joe Schafer, DC, DIBAK. This course focused on things that affected cognition including diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke, cognitive changes from COVID, and traumatic brain injury.
I have been using this knowledge, especially the work of Joe Schafer, in my practice. One of the methods utilizes specific muscle testing and magnets placed on the head to identify key areas of the brain that are negatively affecting a person. One can then contact different points on the body that correspond acupuncture meridians. Keep in mind these are points I contact with my hand, not with needles!
I have seen some pretty rapid and impressive changes in people by doing this. These good outcomes include people with traumatic brain injury and stroke, as well as some of my neurofeedback patients to add an extra boost to therapy.
I also flew to North Carolina to have this done on me by one of my AK mentors as there is nobody in the area who does this kind of work. I found it to be both intriguing and helpful!
Please contact the office if you would like to try this therapy or if you already have an appointment let me know and we can see if it would be the right therapy for you! 727-509-3760.
I'm a Chiropractic Physician, Psychotherapist and researcher. I'm interested in helping people live their lives to their full potential. That could be simply without pain. Or it could be without more complicated physical or mental health problems. Or it could be getting help in making changes in their life so that they can achieve their dreams.
